“The NH Health Protection Program, our version of Medicaid expansion, has been an unqualified success. More than 50,000 hard-working people are now able to receive the health care they need but could not afford previously. Hospitals report fewer emergency room visits and far lower uncompensated care expenses. Because the NHHPP covers treatment for substance abuse, more treatment programs are opening and more people are being helped.” ~ NH State Rep. Marjorie Porter
